Kia Niro: Air bag - supplemental restraint system / Curtain air bag

Curtain air bags are located along both sides of the roof rails above the front and rear doors.

They are designed to help protect the heads of the front seat occupants and the rear outboard seat occupants in certain side impact collisions.

The curtain air bags are designed to deploy during certain side impact collisions, depending on the crash severity of impact. However, when side deployment threshold is satisfied at front-impact, curtain air bags may deploy.

The curtain air bags may deploy on the side of the impact.

The curtain air bags are not designed to deploy in all side impacts situations.

WARNING

Failure to follow the above instructions can result in injury or death to the vehicle occupants in an accident.

WARNING - No attaching objects
